TypeTool is the lightweight version of FontLab.
TypeTool 2.0 by Fontlab Ltd. is the lightweight version of FontLab, and has all the essentials for the type designer. (In fact, some of the fonts at MyFonts.com are created with TypeTool). TypeTool allows you to create new fonts, but you can also fiddle with existing ones by adding special characters or changing some letters (for your own personal use only, please mind the font’s user license!) TypeTool has extensive drawing tools that help adding new characters to the fonts, a metrics window where the sidebearings and the kerning of the font can be set manually or automatically. It has superb autohinting ensuring solid screen quality of created fonts. TypeTool supports Unicode and can open and save PostScript Type 1 and TrueType fonts.
